Plex just landed on Kodi and suddenly the world seems alright again

Following the blockbuster announcement from Netflix regarding offline playback, the makers of the popular Plex Media Player have revealed it is now available as an add on for the equally versatile Kodi platform.

The Plex for Kodi add-on can now be downloaded in preview form for Plex Pass members.

Plex hopes fans of both platforms will enjoy the opportunity to combine the server discovery tools, user switching, and the library browsing experience with the additional settings offered through Kodi.

In a post on the Plex blog the firm wrote: “We’ve been working closely with some of the best Kodi add-on developers in the world to create an awesome, fully-immersive Plex experience within Kodi. Seriously: once you’re up and running, you’ll never know it’s not Plex!

“You get the same Plex server discovery, user switching, gorgeous library browsing, and media playback experience you know and love, plus a few (okay, a few dozen) more settings to tweak to your heart’s content.”

In an FAQ the company reveals it is debuting some “new thinking” as relates to the add-on’s user interface and says it will become official “any minute.”

However, the firm did not reveal exactly when it would be opening up the Plex for Kodi add on to all users.

If you’re a Plex Pass member ($4.99 per month, $39.99 a year or $149.99 for life) you can download it here.

A membership offers the opportunity to record free HDTRV via a DVR as well as syncing for movies music and photos for offline use.
